Today, enjoy a full day private tour of Beijing city. Start the day with a visit to Yonghe Lama temple which is the largest lamasery in Beijing. Head to the Hutongs which are narrow alleyways surrounded by traditional courtyard residences. It used to be a commonplace sight in ancient China's urban planning but such neighborhoods have since been demolished to make way for modern developments. Stroll along Guozijiang Street, which is home to the Confucius Temple and Imperial Academy.
Continue to Drum Tower and climb up the steps as you get treated with a view of the city and hutong of the Houhai. If the timing is right, catch the drum performance that is held at the Drum Tower every hour.
End the day with a visit to the Temple of Heaven, considered as one of the most important worship site of Beijing's imperial temples and the closest to heaven of all buildings in the past. It is conferred as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site and a masterpiece of architecture.
